OnePlus 5 Leaks Hints 8GB RAM Snapdragon SoC And More
Now is the time for OnePlus 5 to brag of its leaked specification and features. Since the launch of OnePlus 3T, the internet was bombarded with speculations of a new offering from the OnePlus in the form of OnePlus 5.

Interestingly enough, the company has opted out the number ‘4’ from the flagship, for rather superstitious beliefs in China. If you want to understand in simple narrative; you can look at the example of the USA. There, many hotels skip the room number 13, before 14 and after 12. So they have a room number 14 after 12, as the number 13 is synonymous to jinx. Quite weird you see.

According to Chinese tech portal PC Pop, the OnePlus 5 will have a whopping 8GB of RAM memory which would be coupled with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor—an upgrade from OnePlus 3T’s Snapdragon 821. And its storage to be bumped up to 256GB.

The leaked article also revealed that the OnePlus 5 would have hardware navigation keys, however the bezel will be thinner than its predecessor. The fingerprint scanner is said to be affixed at the rear of the smart-phone because of the extra display area.  And the OnePlus 5 will be 7mm thin, sleeker than its forerunner in some degree.

On the design front, the reports suggest that the screen size remains the same as the OnePlus 3T, which is 5.5 inch. However, you can expect the company to trim down the bezels and up the resolution to 1440 x 2560 (2K QHD display).  Reportedly a dual camera setup will be deployed that will shoot pictures at 23 megapixel, and a 3000 mAh battery to power the device, which would be a downgrade from the 3T’s 3,400 mAh one.

Lined up to be launched in the second half of this year, OnePlus 5 is expected to have a price tag of around $500. This rise in the rate is evidently pushing the mid-range bracket as far as it could go. And this increase is the significant jump over the OnePlus 3T’s $440 price tag.  But if you compare the price with other flagship smart-phones with similar specifications, the OnePlus 5 expected price is lower by a few hundred dollars. 

OnePlus 5 Leaks –My Take

Without any doubt OnePlus always has been a company that brings smart-phones at medium range budget with high-end configuration. As the leak suggests OnePlus 5 looks sturdy with whooping specs it has to offer, at the same the alleged price is not touching the skies when compared to other flagships in the market. For exact details, we have to wait until the unveiling of the curtains from OnePlus 5 in the next half of the year.

As soon as we learn further updates on this upcoming Smart-phone we will have a say here. So stay Connected!
